Hiroko and I went to a kushikatsu bar in Nishi Azabu. It's really a bar first and foremost; all standing room downstairs, with a low-ceiling'd loft that can seat a few people. It was dead empty when we went in about 8pm -- always a bad sign. We bought tickets from the ticket machine and had a couple of assorted kushikatsu (breaded and fried foods on a stick): pumpkin, tomato, beef, tofu, asaparagus, shrimp. It was perfectly ok, but not really our scene.
